On the Air: The JBL & Cole Show (2012)

It's been a while since we took a look at WWE's YouTube lineup.

Commentators Michael Cole & John "Bradshaw" Layfield have been moonlighting since the end of 2012, co-hosting the JBL & Cole Show (the former champ gets top billing due to ego), while also doing a radio show. On YouTube, a select group of WWE superstars & divas share the stage with the hosts (Cole doesn't appear in the following episode) in a 4-5 minute block of what can only be described as surreal silliness.

Reporter Renee Young fills in for Cole in the following episode. In case you wonder, Renee is from Canada, and that would explain, in a flashback to an earlier episode, Renee, along with Cody Rhodes & Wade "Bad News" Barrett, wearing old school Wolverine cowled masks. Apparently, they had one that was two sizes too small for Barrett. Also, JBL's "nephew", Clem, is actually WWE wrestler Heath Slater, doing some actual acting. Who knew?

Try deciphering what's going on here..........

Yes, Slater shaved his head to play Clem. I'd pay money to see Renee wear that Wolverine cowl again, though, but with the complete costume, if she can find one.

Rating: B+.
